F-105 Dragon Re-Released

F-105 Dragon.  Defense Class
Real name:  F-14X Tomcat 

The F-105 Dragon, a favorite amongst many defense class aficionados, has been re-released.  New release has the same specs as previous releases.  This special edition plane has some flaming hot dragon artwork. One of the best looking planes in the fleet in my opinion. You will definitely leave an impression with your adversary with this baby.  A defense class plane to the core - this baby is heavy on the armor and even has some armor regeneration which is rare these days.   Perfect for campaign and survival matches.  Don't see too many of these in versus matches (as with most defense class planes) - but there are some daredevil defense versus fighters out there to be sure!  If you get a Dragon for versus matches, just beware that you will be slow and pretty easy to hit, but on the upside, you have lots of armor and armor regen to help compensate.  Hats of to Z2Live for showing some creative flare on this plane - great artwork.

See PLANE COMPARISON TABLES for detailed assessment of all the planes performance ratings.

  1. This plane (F-105 Dragon) rarely leaves my hangar just for the simple fact that even when fully upgraded it is extremely slow just like it's cousin the F-105 Bobcat. While I have personally won matches in this plane it is extremely difficult because it just doesn't corner at all (+4 Agility... Pffft). Best to just simply leave this one for Survival Mode or in the hangar.

      Come on man, I got to survival wave #43 with this thing before I blew up fully upgraded and in the hands of a good pilot this baby can deal as much pain as a fully upgraded Hawken or Eagle X with Bisnos. I can use this to beat Mission 3 (arguably the hardest campaign mission) easily and without respawning. The only problem is you can't whip out as many missiles as a Weapons Class but it makes up for that with its heavy armor and the regeneration. It leaves my hanger about 10 times daily just a bit less than my Eagle-X.

  2. I am using this plane sometimes in versus matches and my win rate is actually pretty good with it. I regularly win against planes such as the Hawken, the Eagle, the Liberty and the Hurricane, although is often ends up as a draw. The agility is not so bad and it is very difficult to destroy it if you know how to dogfight. The main danger usually comes from the Hurricane or the Liberty if the pilot knows his stuff.

  3. I really love the Dragon. It's amazing in campaign missions and survival mode, for which I reached the 25th wave with another Dragon wingman. It's not bad in versus mode either, as I simply slow down dog fights (by closing and engaging in a turny pot shot match) against superior opponents like Hawkens with Bisnovats. It doesn't always work, but more often than not, I can draw, or even steal a win. My current win ratio is about 60%. That said, I've noticed things are getting harder as my skill rating nears 5000, I seem to only come up against skilful players using Weapons or Agility class planes. My battles against the latter almost always ends in a draw cos I can't get clean shots at them, and they can't unleash enough firepower to kill my Dragon before I regenerate.

  4. This amazing plane is the plane I always bring to Versus Automatch. I've won many matches with it, using Rams and a vulcan. What I like about this is I can survive death against some rich annoying noobs using Bisnovats and Zeus's.

    2. my one beef with the dragon is that when you look at the price, it is equal to 540 coins. not a very good buy when you think about it that way.

      but hey at the time i had 60000 credits to blow, and I was wanting the dragon.

  8. I'm not sure if Z2Live will re-issue the plane again. It's a good plane, but if you use a different classed plane like agility, don't expect easy manoeuvring and handling- that's not what all defence class were built for. To be funny, what I like about defence class, especially my F-105 Dragon 龍, is that I always end up wasting other people's missiles and cannons! But now I use the P-79 Spectre for most versus matches and everything seems so much faster!(Maybe because it is?) Anyway, here are the best planes of each class in my point of view.
    Weapons:Red Widow
    Agility:P-79 Spectre
    Defence:D112 Eagle(In 2nd place is the Dragon, appearance inspires me too!) Selinalpaca

    1. I always thought limited edition had a pretty obvious meaning.

      Limited to a short amount of time, to people who can afford a 54000 Credit plane. (such as myself, YAY!!!) reissued July 14!!! Good luck getting 54000 creds in a week.

      Back to the original question: if you can't understand 'limited edition' then you must be,

    ReplyDelete
  13. 54K is too exprensive. It's 540 blue coins if you convert it. No plane is worth that. It should be half the price. How much do they expect us to play the game just to unlock a new plane? I'm bored with this game now, its just too much work to do simple tasks.

  15. I really don't find this plane very impressive. Seriously, when you fly this plane, you're flying a fire truck. Your red paint theme and loud siren would cares enemies away- if you have any. When I see this jet, I disconnect. Pilots of this jet just circle around and do 1000000 backflips. Am I longing for this plane? No!!!! Engagements with this plane always end in draws. Unfortunately, because I am rather cheap, I do not invest in bitchnovats missiles so killing a dragon is pretty much impossible. So there we go, looks like this fire truck will be marrying the tired, old turtle(d-112 eagle). (I, personally, don't want to see the wedding ceromony) ... By the way, if you are still planning to buy one of these, remember that even arming your fire truck with powerful water cannons will not help much. ... I hope z2 rereleases the Mako soon. The Mako is likes ferrari in the car world- delta wings, streamlined design...not the best when incomes to stats, but still pretty good. The Mako is just such a element beast...

    1. Different planes for different styles..
      Don't you think it would be boring if there were only agility and weapon planes in the sky? I do not own a defense plane and I do not buy coin missiles. However, I appreciate to run into a defense plane every once in a while. It's challenging because you are faster and have more powerfire but you have to fire it quickly unless it regenerates. Rarely I had the opportunity to play against Green Eagle and it's true that it is very difficult to blow up with credit missiles, it might be a little less true for Dragon. Anyway, fighting against these planes is still a lot funnier than against the typical noob or hacker launching as many Bisnos as he can right at the beginning of the fight...
      In addition, it's really cool that they made the Dragon available again for players who are more into Survival mode. It might be great for campaign too, although the Sentinel - that I own - is really perfect for campaign with its damage, long range lock and armor. By chance, I have been able to save many coins and I think I'm gonna give a shot to the Dragon.

    2. The kid,
      I am not saying I do not like defense class aircraft, I am simply trying to tell everyone that if you buy this plane, do not expect any wins. Never have I been shot down by a single dragon and as a former dragon pilot, I can tell you that the plane's bright red gets old after a while. In campaign mission, yeah sure, it will not be shot down, but your lack of damage will cause you to have a hard time defending your fleet( such as the tanks in mission 5). For those who like survival mode, I guess this would be a pretty nice plane. However, it is rather annoying that in versus mode to when you get matched with a dragon. I know the dragon well, and I can tell you if you use standard issue against this plane, it can fly in a straight line and you will never be able to shoot it down. If you have bitchnovats, you have a chance. Personally, I think this is just a game forum and I do not consider wasting my ammo on a dragon as fun. With that said, if you really enjoy survival mode and like defense class aircraft, consider this aircraft. Me, I'm just trying to give some advise.







      By the way, why did you by the sentinel???? The eagle x has around the same damage and lock range, and is way cheaper. Sure, it does have slightly less armor and agility, but consider its cost too. Not really worth it in my mind

      Delete
    3. I got you about the Dragon, thank you for sharing your experience with that plane. I'm thinking about it because I'm a bit tired of versus match for now and I'm more often playing campaign and also survival mode in those times. The problem with a weapon plane in survival game is that your armor will inevitably decrease one hit after one hit until the last one... Little doubt in my opinion that defense planes (especially Dragon) are the best for survival. Getting passed wave 20 is really a challenge and I hope doing it soon. So it may help... I do agree with you that the Dragon must be less interesting in versus, and maybe also for campaign. If you are careful, it is not so difficult to survive with a weapon plane in the missions and the firepower is helpful to protect your fleet as you said. By the way, I played with a Zephyr before and found some missions really challenging with that plane.
      Why the Sentinel? When I bought it, my only plane was the Zephyr and I was thinking about buying a weapon class plane. The Hawken did not draw my eye that much, though it is obviously an excellent plane, because I do not love its skin design. Had I the opportunity at this time, I would probably have picked the Red Widow (the most beautiful plane for me, and also one of the best) but it was no longer available. I appreciated the Sentinel design and I thought (and I still think actually) that it largely compares with the Red Widow and the Hawken and that these three planes are the best in the weapon class. The agility is not bad (only 4% less than Hawken and RW), the fire-power is outstanding and the extra armor is also good. The long range is very helpful, both in campaign missions and in versus mode. Playing with the Sentinel made me very confortable with campaign missions (most often I ace all the objectives of the mission) and helped me to increase my SR from about 2000 to more than 4000 with RAAMs. I'm not saying that my previous plane, the Zephyr, is not good, but you have to be more skilful than I am to manage with the low armor and powerfire, especially with credit missiles.
      Anyway, I saved a good amount of coins and I hope that the RW will be re-released soon, not really because I think it is better than the Sentinel, but rather because it is so beautiful. For know, I have my pockets full of coins and I can also afford to buy the Dragon also...

  17. Guys, do you know why Z2Live made it 54000 green coins? If they made it the same price as the current Thresher, it would cost 22500 green coins. The only reason they made it expensive is 1. Green coin purchasable planes are extremely easy to get 2. Featured green coin planes are amongst the rarest. I think the Dragon is the only featured plane that could be purchased with green coins. BTW, I am a dragon specialist who has retired and now uses his new Spectre. But in the Dragon age, I had to adjust to its slowness and disadvantage and find tactics to survive. All defence planes are slow people, but when you find out how to use the defence plane, you'll realise you'll be hard to beat. I don't suggest buying this plane if you use another class especially like agility, because the total change in speed and agility is unfamiliar. Selinalpaca

Either way, you've wasted your money. This plane is useless, and Stan the Man, if your definition of adjusting to slowness and disadvantages is doing backflips over and over again just like Green Eagle Pilots, you have got issues. I don't think backflipping is exactly an advanced skill and nor is armor reg.

  19. I'm buying it for survival. I'm trying to get that wave 20 achievement and as high as I can get with Raven playing solo is wave 19. I have slow internet so most of my playing without help in survival. When I get a chance to play versus I use my Hawken, but in survival I'm lucky to make past wave 10.

    I've got to go earn some more credits now using the Raven in survival. :) I'm at 49,000 now.

    2. ok ok as of the time of your comment/question, if my calculation is correct you would need 39,000 credits.

      This equals to 500 credits ( completing wave 12 in survival mode x 78 ) - which should be the same as 300 sec. ( human seconds ) x 78 , that's if you're playing with a buddy, no guarantees no warranties N sorry 4 late calculation ( im a weebit slow ) plus my idea of a joke earlier ( a weebit slower AG ) butt goodluck cos i dunno how long its gonna stay - speaking for my self - my freakin thumb hurts N ipod touch feels strange, maybe cos thumper hurts ! dunno again, butt im CE ( Certain Enough ) this is true ( TIT ) OK, TC ( Take Care NOT Terms & Conditions Apply ) N have fun ! cos that's what matters

    1. Ok, the Dragon did what I wanted it to do. It got me the wave 20 achievement playing solo. I could get to wave 19 but not beyond with anything else. After upgrading it for everything except the silly coin power regeneration, I finished wave 21. When I got to wave 22, I decided I had done enough and quit.

      So yes, it is slow but for Survival it is king of what is available now. The only time I'll play it with others online is in Survivor mode. In Versus I'll be flying my Hawken.

      Delete
    7. If you don't have problems to survive but you are concerned with getting all rewards, I would recommand that you use a fully upgraded weapon plane rather than any other class of plane. I have a Sentinel and find that it's perfect for campaigns. Most of the time I m able to ace all three objectives in any mission with standard missiles and cannons. I doubt that the slight differences between the top weapon planes (Sentinel, Hawken, Red Widow, Helix and maybe others..) could play a major role in getting the rewards as all of them have relatively similar firepower and excellent features. If you have already a Hawken, upgrade it if necessary but it would not be worthless to buy another plane just for that reason. If you still find difficult to protect your tanks, I would suggest to use Phoenix missiles. As a first step to ace that objective, you may also focus on protecting your tanks and not destroy the two factories.
      By the way, the most difficult for me is not to protect all tanks in the last campaign, but rather to destroy all Dominus missiles before they hit your fleet in mission 3.

  39. Guess what Dragon flyers! Z2 Live is about to release a plane that will render all of our Dragons OBSOLETE. In case you haven't checked the stats for this new plane, the R-94 Achilles, the stats are:
    Stealth: +12% 2nd BEST in class
    Damage: +10% BEST in class
    Speed: +15% BEST ALL
    Evasion: +5% ONLY defense plane with that stat.

    I love the Dragon, but Z2 is going over the top with this plane here. Any thoughts?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. No extra Armor Regen nor DMG Reduction. Stealth is useless because, despite the extra speed, it's still a defense plane and hence too slow to avoid lock on; moreover it's less agile than the Dragon.

      10% extra damage is nice but the Dragon regenerates armor at more than twice the rate of the Achilles.

      tl;dr: Dragon > Achilles

      Delete
    2. It has no extra armor, or armor regen. The damage and speed are nice, but still fall behind weapon and agility class planes. As for the evasion, it is nice but the Green eagle has evasion too. Overpriced for 390 coins. I would fly my Dragon any day over the Achilles.

      Delete
    3. Sorry, the Green Eagle has 6% evasion I think... Armor Regen is very important, yes, but what's the point of it when you get simply blown out of the sky. But again, the Dragon has that slight edge of agility... I still don't know which plane is the best, but the Achilles is WAY overpriced.

  44. Also, I have to consider Dragon the best defense class plane, with tied 2nd best armor bonus in the whole fleet, 3rd best DMG resistance in the fleet, 2nd most armor regen in the whole fleet (if you consider green eagle, though I think it no longer exist)and 3rd in class agility. It is the best mostly because it got 9% armor regen which allow it to regenerate armor in a very short time. The little agility boost is also very rare for defense class. Lastly the armor and DMG resist is also very impressive even for a defense class. Yes it does lack on stealth and maybe energy, but those aren't really important since defense class already got tons of them. Overall, Dragon got the most impressive and important stats in all defense class which make it the best.

  47. It just sucks way to slow not enough fire power I bought it because I have a shit ton of credits. Not worth it in my opinion because even though it's purchased with credits it takes coins to upgrade. :(

    This plane is a somehow really big drag. I got enough coins to get a raven but to get 54000 green credits is like not buying a better plane when it comes out while the saving spree got you enough money to buy the better plane.
    P.S., I really rock at survival. I can get up to wave 20 without too much trouble.
    I only have 500 skill rating but in survival my skill rating should be way higher than my versus mode stats( because I never play versus)

    Oh yeah, I got a Dragon, and it's beast. once you fully upgrade it, you will get the idea that this plane will be a very resourceful plane. I have gotten to round 26 with another fellow partner, but he died on wave 13, so I had to do the rest solo.
    My highest score in survival was achieved using my Raven, and that score is 12,191. My highest score with the Dragon was clocked in at 11,361. It's armor will help you survive plenty of hits and can be a great alternative plane in Versus matches.
    However, I had to do some planning to get this plane, as getting 54000 credits when it's out is not a smart idea.
    For anyone who wants this plane, I think it might be released October 1st, but take this with grains of salt as it might change.
    P.S., just start saving credits now so that you don't have to when it comes out again.
    Oh yeah, can anyone tell me if any clans need pilots? I am a great addition to their fleet!

  59. I use the dragon most of time in versus matches... before I use dragon as a dog fight my skills was on 9000, at the begging I just drawed a lot of times however I gain experiences with it... now I'm on the 31000 skills in just a two months more that... I improved a lot... and more that 1000 wins... my average of victories is 25 to 30... just using Vulcan and 120 RAAM. Some player after they lost or draw against me they felt frustrated and send racist insults... (I'm mexican)... I don't like that.


    I recommended this plane.
